Thread: When doing IF and HST trainging, should fasting be done every day?

    Default When doing IF and HST trainging, should fasting be done every day?

    Hi

    I am confused about Intermittent Fasting regimes.
    (e.g. as summarised here: http://www.leangains.com/2008/06/bri...oaches-to.html )

    In the various forms of IF - e.g. "The Warrior Diet", "The Fast-5 Diet", and "Leangains" diet - are the fasts done every day of the week?

    I am doing HST training 3 days per week (usually Mon/Wed/Fri) - usually in the evenings. My problem is that surely I should be feeding and not fasting immediately after and also in the mornings after my training sessions.

    - Any advice?

    John

    P.S. I am also wondering about the impact of time of day on fasting.
    e.g. If I do the Leangains version, may I fast at both ends of the day?
    (e.g. stop eating at 7PM, start eating at 11AM) ?
    And if so, how different should my diet be in response to training days?

    ...And what happens if I dont finish training until 8:30PM - I am seriously supposed to fast until 11AM the next day?(!)

    I think CDB already answered most of this yesterday, but if you are doing HST and IF then yes, still fast every day. I would personally use cardio as the workout on non-HST days.

    Deadlift - 635 lbs
